Stephanie & I were out last night in Santa Monica to support our friends The Hundreds and their Garfield art show opening. We arrived to find a huge line in front of the venue with fans of The Hundreds and Garfield waiting to get in to purchase the collaboration items and a chance to meet Garfield creator Jim Davis. Thankfully Stephanie & I ran into Dom from Brooklyn Projects who brought us in through the side entrance. The event space was already packed to capacity with friends, family and VIPs. We got to see our friends Scotty Hundreds, Switch, Rob Heppler, Tony Hundreds, and Rod from Emortal. We checked out the venue and then went up to the loft area where Jim Davis was signing and parked ourselves there for the duration of the time we were there.
Here is the view from the loft area.
Jim Davis was already signing at full steam when we got there. He was very personable and took photos with everyone after signing their items.
